9780060584849: Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth

Richard Foster explains why he believes that the classical spiritual disciplines such as mediation, submission and fasting are the only true ways to promote a deep inner life and infuse it with over whelming joy.

Arguably the most established contemporary spiritual classic by our most profound living religious writer.
